"Time Machine" performed in Via Rastello, Gorizia. Italy
"Time Machine" performed at the Pe?inka Cave, Miren. Slovenia
Performance-installation, residency at InVisible Cities multimedia festival in Gorizia (Italy) and Nova Gorica (Slovenia)
This was the result of a 5-day art residency in Gorizia, one of the several strands of the multimedia and performance festival InVisible Cities festival,
a European Cultural Fund project. Drawing together archive footage from WWI, performance for the camera shot in Gorizia
and around the controversial border that surrounds the area, the film was projected onto a large fabric screen, to which the performer was attached.
The cyclical nature of constructing, destroying and rebuilding cities is presented with an ambiguous figure who both affects the verticality of the screen and creates multiple meanings through human and animal movement. The performance took place in a street in Gorizia (Italy) and in a prehistorical cave around Miren (Slovenia) used during WWI as a refuge by Austro-hungarian forces .
Performed by Alexandra Baybutt
Film by Yuri Pirondi and Ines von Bonhorst
Music by Alessandro Ruzzier.
Nova Gorica images taken from Mesto na Travniku, directed by Anja Medved and Nadja Veluscek, Produced by Kinoatelje.
The Installation was created as part of the residency described above, this installation of film was projected onto a screen hung high in a street
so audiences could pass beneath. Forming a loop, the images sought to avoid resolution, highlighting the ongoing process of city evolution, albeit at many different speeds.
The project has been funded by Creative Europe Programme of European Union, Slovenian Ministry of Culture, Croatian Ministry of Culture and Friuli Venezia Giulia Region.
